The episode was praised for its humor, length, and writing. "Perhaps the feminism topic is a bit milked, but episode 3 seems to just enhanced the series as it progresses with a trademark stupid-funny cast, clever writing, and just enough offensive content to cause a stirring," Bennett Joel said about the episode.

There was slight controversy surroung LaShonna, an apparent janitor for Monkey's Pride. When she was mentioned, Buck said "She only three-fifths counts". This possibly referred to the Three-Fifths Compromise of 1787, in which only 3/5 of a state's slaves were counted in the population.
